My name is Joshua JD Lemmens and that's my wife Giada behind me, it has been 6 adventurous years that we have been married and there is no turning back. It has been a passion for a little more than a year to build tiny homes. Not only for myself, but that others may learn how to do it yourself as well that marginalized groups may benefit from the philosophy of going small can be a good thing. We hope that you enjoy our videos and if you have anything to bring our site through videos or information, by all means send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Imagine owning your own home, no mortgage, no more huge rental costs, and a home that anyone can afford, with a little work, scavenging, dreaming and fortitude, you can have a tiny house. You can build it yourself, with family and friends, and with help from the Tiny Home Show's videos and links. Our focus is using recycled materials and low cost alternatives, whenever possible.
For three years a friend has been telling me to build tiny homes and teach others alternative methods of building using recycled materials and creating something from what is available for little or nothing; and for three years I only half listened to her advice until I was forced out of my home, then I understood the need that everyone has a right to have a space of their own, and call it home.
Living in British Columbia we face several different challenges that others around North America may not, so we hope to address them in our videos.
We usually have a lot of moisture in our region from rain and fluctuations in weather patterns, but also desert like dryness. From extreme to extreme, building a tiny house with this in mind is an important part of keeping warm and dry on the west coast, as moss grows on our heads and we start developing webbed feet.
We also hope to deal with some of the problems we face from environmental issues which will influence our building plan.
